Class 2 Learning

We had a visit in school from some farm animals. Class 2 were really lucky and got to feed the calves.

As part of Sports Week we took part in lots of different sports. These included archery, climbing and a Race for Life run.

We have had Art Week in school. We chose to learn about Trash Art because we felt it fed into our topic of Making a Difference. We used old buttons, bottle tops, fabric and ribbon to create pieces of art. We then made the classroom into an Art Gallery for the parents to come and look at the work.

This week our chicks and ducklings have hatched! We have 8 of each. The ducklings are particularly amusing as they patter around the cage. The children are learning how to look after them and were really excited to be able to hold one each.
Today we are celebrating the Royal Wedding. Everyone has come to school in their wedding guest clothes. We all look very smart!
We have started our Summer Term topic called ‘Making a Difference’. We will be looking at how we can make a difference to our lives, the School and the local community. We have started the topic by looking at how to stay healthy and exploring what is a balanced diet. We have also looked at how food is digested.
This morning we had our annual Easter Egg decorating competition. Here are some of the entries from Class 2.

Two sheep in a pen

Captain Underpants with George and Harold in a tree house.

A VW Campervan with an egg driver.

Nigel (the cat) in the garden.

Alien School.

Rainbow Fish.

The whole school ran the Sport Relief Mile. Most children then chose to run extra, with some running 3 miles!
To improve our measuring skills we have been making potions and baking cupcakes.
We learnt about tribal dancing and created our own tribal dances to celebrate some of the animals.

Everyone Got dressed up for World Book Day. The costumes were fantastic!

BFG brought his favourite book with him.

Horrid Henry brought his box of tricks to school.

We had a lesson discussing stereotypes. We started by sorting male and female roles. This raised a lot of very interesting discussion!
We have started our ‘On Safari’ topic. Our main focus is going to be Africa but to begin with we have been learning a bit more about where we live in the world. This will help us when we have to compare Africa with our local area.
We have been learning the 5 oceans and 7 continents of the world. We also used Google Maps to look at our local area.
We went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park to learn about animal habitats and adaptations. Lots of the animals were African. We had a fantastic day! The animals were in a very cheeky mood and many of them came quite close to us so we could clearly see them. We had to work out which animals some of the objects belonged to. This was a polar bear skull!
This was very smelly camel fur! We handled cockroaches.
We were also able to handle a giant snail… and allowed to touch a python!
We have been learning about verbs and adverbs. We then used these to write some firework poems.
Inspired by harvest time Class 2 decided to use some cooking apples to make apple and chilli chutney. The children learned to use knives and peelers safely and were also able to weigh out all of the ingredients independently. Everybody tried the chutney on some bread and it was really spicy!

We have started our topic called Once Upon a Time. Everyone filled a bag with their favourite book and lots of props related to the story. They then showed the class the props and they had to guess which book was in the bag and give a reason why. This was lots of fun. The children also shared their bags with others on their table. 

We have also been comparing the similarities and differences in Julia Donaldson books. We all really enjoyed reading the books and some children were even introduced to some books they have not read before.
